Have on mine by Stainless finish.

Very happy with both the look and the sound, more that acceptable even without the baffles.



Easy to install, the only strunlging I faced, was to keep intact the graphite joint from the OEM canister.

Ive also checked out this exhaust as its definitely one of the better looking solutions for the Versys. Do you have an issues with your boot hitting the pipe while riding?

Never had the issue, but sometimes, I'll find traces left by my wife's boots. Easy to remove.

Are there any issues with the exhaust blasting the panniers? Maybe its the angle of the picture but it kinda looks like it exits right at the hard cases.

Well, I did over 25K kilometers (15K miles) with the paniers and the Ixil pipe, last time I cheked the right panier, no traces of melting  :001:

The Z1000 unsing the same panier shapes but with mufflers blowing up, there is a heat place beloow the panier. But I think the end pipe is longer and closer to the bottom of the panier.

Panniers on some 2015 bikes have a heat deflection plate fitted

I Applied some aluminum foil  tape to the bottom of the pannier ... the tape reflects the heat away from the pannier
Preparation is key: make sure the pannier is very clean and warm to the touch and then peal off the backing and firmly apply the tape .
it should last awhile ….there are cheaper brands then below  and they should work just as well .
